    Al-Qaida leader wanted in USS Cole bombing killed in Yemen airstrike

    According to this report from MSNBC.com, Fahd al-Quso and Fahed Salem al-Akdam, Al-Qaida leaders who were intimately involved in the bombing of the USS Cole, were killed in yet another drone strike authorized by the President. They make the 3rd and 4th Al-Qaida leaders, respectively, to now be pushing up daisies under President Obama's watch. The others were:

    American terrorist, Anwar Al-Awlaki, killed in drone attack in Yeman.

    Mastermind of 9/11 attacks, Osama Bin Laden, killed in SpeOps raid on his private compound in Pakistan.

    And now these two men. Gotta give the Obama his props. He's taking down Al-Qaida one terrorist leader at a time.

    Must have been a long distance trial.

    Actually, we got tired of waiting for you to go to Yemen and arrest him.

    Keep blowing the hell out of these asshats, Obama. To hell with what the armchair quarterbacks say.

    Good on the CIA for getting the info on this guy, and good on the military for taking him out. Another bad guy gets taken out of the equation.
